Morristown Clean Communities is constantly looking for civic-minded “foster” individuals and groups wishing to “adopt:” and care for publicly-owned properties.
There are lots of publicly-owned properties around Morristown that could be even more attractive and inviting than they already are if only they had some extra TLC. Morristown Clean Communities is constantly looking for and welcomes civic-minded “foster” individuals and groups wishing to “adopt” and care for designated parks, playgrounds, monuments, parking lots, traffic islands and neighborhood streets and sidewalks over a period as short as a year. Some sites are large enough that two or more organizations can participate at a single Adopt-A-Spot.
While caring for their chosen property, Adopt-A-Spot caregivers are encouraged to hold regular litter clean-ups – and also are invited to implement beautification projects that would enhance their site. Their contributions to Morristown’s beautification are recognized with a Morristown Clean Communities Adopt-A-Spot Sponsor plaque displayed at the site.
